If you’re the not the master of a skincare routine, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Four months ago I never used moisturizer, let alone knew what a serum was. Being in my early twenties, I thought I didn’t have to think about a skincare routine until I was older. Boy, was I in the dark! Mastering a skincare routine isn’t easy, especially when you’re in a sea of products and unsure where to look. So, I thought I would keep it simple for you, take a look at the routine that will change your life for the better:

Morning Queen:

To start your day off you’ll want to energize your face and wake it up ready for the day. It’s all about locking that moisture in and protecting yourself from free radicals.

1. Cleanse 

 

Kale + Green Tea Spinach Age Prevention Cleanser ($36) available here.

The ultimate super food your skin needs, this cleanser is perfect for your morning routine. Packed with antioxidant-rich kale, spinach, and green tea means your skin will be protected from poly-aging and free radicals. Feel refreshed and clean. Buy yours here.

2. Tone

SISLEY – PARIS Floral Toning Lotion ($103) available here.

Let Sisley Paris take care of your skin as it works to both brighten, and firm your complexion straight after cleansing. Once part of your routine, always part of your routine. Buy yours here.

3. Moisturizer With SPF 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($44) available here.

My favorite, favorite, favorite! Go bare and have this tinted moisturizer work just as good as your favorite foundation. I honestly can’t live without it – plus you’re protected. Buy yours here.

Lunchtime Re-birth

Use your lunchtime to give your skin a little quick refresh, rehydrate it and make sure it’s ready for the afternoon ahead.

1. Energizing Mist

Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Energizing Citrus Mist ($34) available here.

Not only to help make your skin soft and supple, it will experience a rebirth with this re-energizing mist. Just like Miranda, you won’t be able to leave home without it once you’ve been exposed to its brilliance! Buy yours here.

Sleeping Beauty:

Your night time routine will vary slightly. You’re going to want to cleanse your face from all the anti-oxidants, grime and pollution of the day.

1. Nighttime Cleanser 

Clinique ‘Take the Day’ Off Cleansing Balm ($29) available here.

A good cleansing balm will melt the makeup (and stress) off your face in just a few minutes, leaving you fresh-faced and clean. It’s the first step to better skin because it will remove everything, including pollution! Buy it here. 

2. Antioxidize 

Herbivore Botanicals Orchid Facial Oil ($64) available here.

The best ingredients to defend your skin against free radicals, expect to see an increase in elasticity and have your skin inundated with the best vitamins.  Buy yours here.

3. Night Cream

GOOP Replenishing Night Cream ($140) available here.

Goop is huge right now, and there’s a good reason why. Although this night cream is pricey, it really is the best. Feel luxurious with this night cream that plumps, firms and brightens your skin overnight. Buy yours here.

4. Eye Serum 

Benefit Puff Off Eye Gel ($38.69) available here.

One product I really can’t live without. Remember to take care of those eyes, and say goodbye to puffiness and dark circles for good! Buy yours here.
